The computer with the software and the camera must be connected to the same network. After finding the camera, click on it, give it a name, input the username and password and click the "OK"button.

Each camera has a unique UID to register with the software.

If you add a battery-powered camera such as the Argus, a message should appear to warn you about the battery duration.
